Create a rose bud out of a few punch out flowers.
- 3 die cut, or punched flowers
- Barbecue pin
- Draped wire
- Soft green paper (small square, hand cut a star)
Bend each petal of your first flower.
Cut out the middle of each flower.
Add glue to the petal next to the cut.
Place the wire at one edge of the first petal and wrap the paper around it tight, then add glue on the half of the other petal. Place seam in the middle of next petal … and so on until all the petals are mounted around the wire.
If you want a small rosebud, you stop here and don’t add anymore layer… and jump to step 8.
Add glue on the half of the all the petals of the next flower.
Here are two layers added… stop here if you like a middle sized rosebud, if you want a big rosebud add a third layer.
Cut from corner to corner a V on the small square, the end result should look like this, that they are uneven doesn’t do anything, they look more natural if they are uneven. Add glue all over and bull it up and over the bud.
Here are the roses with one, two and three layers.
Finally, use a tweezers to bend the petals, to create more life to the rosebud.
Work your way in to the middle.
Your rose bud flowers are finished.
